Official Trailer

Leo and Remi are two thirteen-year-old best friends, whose seemingly unbreakable bond is suddenly, tragically torn apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Close is an emotionally transformative and unforgettable portrait of the intersection of friendship and love, identity and independence, and heartbreak and healing. As one film critic notes, ‘this Belgian buddy story seems to be so beautifully understated, until, suddenly, it isn’t.’
